1.) I eat way too much food ~ Typically I gain about 5 lbs on a week vacation and Mike usually loses 5 lbs. How is that fair?
2.) I don't drink enough water ~ Mike and I headed to the gym last Friday when we got back from Charleston and we both felt really dehydrated! UGH!
Hopefully I'll get better at both of the above for our next travels. On to the vacation...
Charleston, SC was excellent! It was so beautiful and filled with history, obviously. I tried to learn some of this history on the various tours we took but it was SO much! My brain was on history overload. Here's a run-down of our adventures ~ Took a carriage tour, walked and walked and walked, hit some happy hours, went to the "only tea plantation in America," went to the Firefly Vondka distillery and sampled vodka, went to the Irvin House vineyard and sampled wine, ate some of Jason's yummy cooking, visited Fort Moultrie, visited Fort Sumter, and ate "all you can eat shrimp and crab legs. I think that about covers it in a nutshell! Thanks to Beth and Jason for inviting us on the trip. It was great to see you guys!
Well, the snow hit and it hit hard! Schools were off the entire week last week, off today for President's Day, and some are delayed or closed tomorrow. Federal offices were closed Monday-Thursday of last week. It's craziness! The snow was pretty incredible. We were here for the storm on the 5th, left the 7th for Charleston, then the second storm hit on the 10th. I just uncovered my car yesterday from all the snow. Mike started the uncovering on Saturday and I finished it on Sunday. Crazy! I really don't think I've ever seen this much snow in my lifetime. I remember some big storms in the NE when I was younger but I'm not sure I've seen this much snow in such a short time. Compared to the 7.5 inches we received last winter season, 72 inches is quite a shock so far for this season...with more projected before the season is over!
We have some visitors coming over the next month! Jed(Mike's Best Man in our wedding) is coming in a few weeks and Mike's parents are visiting at the end of March. Looking forward to it...but I supposed that means we are due for a deep cleaning of the house. UGH!
